STATEMENT cultivates its uniqueness in the choice of materials, as well as the expression of a strong and symbolic aesthetic. It is this singularity that our clients, like Delphine, Creative Director of fragrances for Guerlain, seek.
A fashion school graduate, Delphine discovered perfumery through her final year project: designing a collection, which she wanted to be highly sensorial, around cashmere and linen. It was a project in which she brought her personal touch to the fore, awakening the jury's senses by expressing the scent of these two materials in olfactory terms. It was a decisive experience that turned her towards perfumery.
Independent and creative, the woman for whom audacity does pay, advocates a refined elegance balanced by more modern and rock notes, in her work as in her appearance. She subtly integrates these in her STATEMENT pieces, like an ode to her individuality and the freedom to show herself as she is.
Delphine invites us on a journey to the heart of GUERLAIN's olfactory universe, with its woody, amber, musky and gourmand scents, as well as floral and spicy ones, to discover the bond she has with her STATEMENT jewellery.
How did you know STATEMENT?
I walked by the boutique, intrigued, but I didn't go in. I'll always remember it, I loved the universe, I thought it was brilliant.
Around the same time, I read something about Amélie that struck me: the fact that STATEMENT jewellery was to be worn like a suit of armour rather than an ornament. That and the discourse around silver, linked to femininity and the moon. That really moved me.
Which STATEMENT creations do you wear?
I'm wearing 3 pieces, my MY WAY in diamond-paved silver, the little STAIRWAY creole and the ROCKAWAY cross necklace. It's my most recent piece, but I'm already planning to complete my collection with the ANYWAY bracelet in silver and white diamonds, a large earring and why not a piece in yellow gold?
What was the reason for choosing silver?
I like the sparkle of diamonds on silver, so it didn't hold me back at all. I love the light that paved silver gives off.
I was also very attracted to the fact that silver is a very feminine metal, linked to the moon, which I didn't know. For me, that's a very special characteristic, something that's unique to STATEMENT, and which makes the House so recognisable.
